More Sense And Another Dose Of Sensibility

Filming is now underway on the BBC's latest Jane Austen adaptation, Sense and Sensibilty. The director is John Alexander, previously responsible for episodes of Teachers, Life on Mars and Holby City as well as Bondmaker, a docudramatic biopic (four words for the price of two - bargain!) about the life of Ian Fleming. I wouldn't get too excited about his involvement.

The scriptwriter, however, is much more appealing - it's the rather brilliant Andrew Davies who did a phenomenally good job with Pride and Prejudice.

The cast for Sense includes David Morrissey, The League of Gentlemen's Mark Gatiss, Janet McTeer - who was incredible in Tideland - and the newcomers Hattie Morahan and Charity Wakefield as Elinor and Marianne. Expect much fanfare when the three-parter rolls out on BBC and PBS next year.
